Treasury Bonds

Principal & Interest Guaranteed

Treasury bonds come in a variety of forms, each bringing different benefits, risks, and tax considerations to an investor’s portfolio. A U.S. Government-issued bond or Treasury offers various tax advantages and fits a wide range of investment objectives.

Scottrade also offers Treasury Inflation Protection Securities (TIPS) which are Treasuries that are adjusted semi-annually to represent a real, inflation-adjusted yield. The coupon on TIPS is significantly lower than a non-TIP security. Contact a convenient Scottrade branch office for help with TIPS trading.
